Crop And Save
Big fan of independant cinema, Adrienne Shelly was my favourite actress. Other favourite movies of recent vintage include Siblings, and Me And You And Everyone We Know. Also a huge fan of documentaries, both the more serious work such as Michael Moore's, and those based in entertainment such as The Devil And Daniel Johnston, Mayor Of The Sunset Strip, and New York Doll. I have a weakness for mainstream romantic comedies, and a few other random favourites would include High Fidelity, About A Boy, Pieces Of April, and the absolute classic Still Crazy, which is Spinal Tap but better, and slightly more realistic. I also have a weakness for long gone television shows, Wonderfalls, Dead Like Me, Action, My So-Called Life, Arrested Development, and my all time favourite, Dinosaurs.
Opera No. 1 (1994)
A fitting tribute to the memory of Adrienne Shelly
This is a very short mock-opera, very entertaining. Should be of great interest to fans of Hal Hartley, and the late Adrienne Shelly. It is fun, extremely quirky. The music, which I believe to be a Hartley original, is excellent, the actors look at though they are having fun. I found this on a compilation in Canada last year, Possible Films, which is a collection of short films from Hal Hartley, nothing against anything else on the disc, but this is by far and away the highlight of the disc. The basic plot is simple, there is only so much you can do in an 8 minute musical, but two muses set about to bring together a man and a woman, but there are roadblocks. I would highly recommend this to anyone and everyone.
